it’s been a long road to get all the right attorneys and corporation data and paperwork in Place in order to set up a small-business-bank-account but yesterday – it happened!
quite a whirl of Officialdom to get to This Point.
we had to ask our NY attorney to ask the secretary of state for NYC to get us a certificate of good standing (sort of like a Good Conduct Prize at school) and then find an L.A based attorney to file paperwork telling the good people of california that we’re here (Transfer from one boarding school to another due type paperwork) and then taking the checks (british = cheques) which we’d been keeping in a plastic envelope, safely already received for Work Done To Date by teamgloria, inc and Sign here and there and by-the-cross and suddenly (after 5 months) it was DONE!
and we’ve noticed that HSBC (where we’ve been banking for 15 years – along with – it turns out – some rather notorious types) has had to hire a SPY to come in and look closely at the books.
we decided on our new business bank for two reasons:
1/they support female entrepreneurs and give them prizes on the court at the lady-Lakers games which is jolly nice
2/they’re in the CAA building in the centre of century city.
and it would be ever so delicious to bump into Nicole, Meryl or Oprah as they go to visit Their Agent, non?
talking about lovely people – look who RT (retweeted if you’re not familiar with twitter-speak) us yesterday!
so thank you to the lovely Darcy Smallwood* who Handled Everything at Comerica yesterday and was not only kind but funny and warm and we had the nicest time setting up the account.
*only we could find a banking official in Los Angeles who sounds like a Jane Austen heroine, darlings!
and thank you to beautycalypse for the glowing green emerald pen – it’s very much at home here in Hollywood.
like our new bank account.
yesterday we did something we haven’t done for a while.
we sat in a green park and sipped a non-fat milk americano (small one) and just felt awfully happy and at peace and reminded ourselves that patience is a Virtue and will Build Character.
